Damn, people on internet should feel less "attacked".

"we are saying that there's also room for professionalism.... and if netlabels step up, then we'll give them their deserved shine"

And I just requestion a lot the professionalism into just gathering all the releases into one post with not much words about it.
How do I know I want to click on this or that url?

You're picking on a MINOR feature of the site. Please DO check my releases, because THAT is the heart of the project.

Again I say, when you come up with a way to collect the information I do in the lists in a more professional manner, then please let me know and I'll redirect blocSonic users to your listing.

I find nothing unprofessional about my release lists.

Checked and finally, it's indeed more useful than just this long list of urls.
Remind me of the defunct ko_lo project back in 2003 or so.

Though back in this time, there were so few netlabels that it was easier to make a choice and now, with the amount of what is released for free everyday on internet on netlabels OR independently, I wonder if making such compilations isn't missing many other things around...

The list is actually the first part of your website I've seen by googling around some words like "netlabels" and I completly failed at understanding the point of it all.

Well, thanks for giving the site a further study. It's appreciated. Though your initial comments weren't for nothing. It set a fire under me to update my ruby script which scrapes the feeds. I've come up with a plan to include not only genre or keywords(in the case of Archive.org), but also a small thumbnail of the cover. The listings will be much improved thanks to your input.

Peace
Mike

And as you seem to care about showing the "releases" as more important than the "lists", maybe considering the "releases" to be shown at first should do a better job :/

If you look at every blog post at blocSonic, it features the most recent netBloc release at the time of the posting. So yeah, the releases DO weigh more than the lists do. Do you not see that cover next to the list? The one that says "Current netBloc"? That is a release.

Anyway... this isn't about blocSonic... it's about the Thinner discussion. So let's move on.
